When we say ‘Find Fun’ at FunSearch we mean it. That’s because we’re a company with the unashamedly exciting concept of fun literally built into our DNA. Sometimes though, things try to get in the way of this, like all that legal jazz you are about to read
So really we’re saying, just be genuine about how you use FunSearch and how you work with us, as we are with you, and together we’ll achieve our mutual aims and more. If you don’t act like a nice human, we’re gonna have to say ‘Goodbye’ to you and who likes Goodbyes?
The next bit is important to read but mind-numbing for most people. So prepare for your eyes to glaze over while your brain absorbs it all.
Much Love and fun times,
The FunSearch Team
